The whole principle behind getting married is to share the happiness and sorrow with their counterparts for better future. Sheila Downs went on the similar journey but in a different way when she married her husband Nate Duhon in the first glance in the show “Married at First Sight.” In spite of heated argument and differences between the couple that surfaced during the show, they are determined to keep their relationship alive.
Married at “Married at First Sight”!
The concept of “Married at First Sight” is pretty simple, you get married to your counterpart as set up by the relationship experts and see how things turn up for eight weeks and then decide, whether you want to stay married or part ways. Well, the outcome hasn’t been as simple as the concept, only four out of possible fifteen marriages are still intact and others have already divorced.
On the fifth season of “Married at First Sight,” fans witness three couples trying to find their feet in the relationship. And among them, Shelia Downs and Nate Duhon are still married.

Their relationship has been everything but smooth, on 12th May 2017, her husband Nate shocked Sheila when he said that he couldn’t be married to her anymore which paved the way from the devastating and heartbroken speech of Sheila. She said:
“I spent the majority of my 20s trying to convince men that they wanted this, When I’m easy to love, I’m easy to love. I never had someone to love me when I wasn’t easy to love.”
The apparent bust-up occurred when the couple was playing ping pong game, and Sheila felt that he was being too competitive against her and labeled him “sore loser.” She also claimed that losing is something that Nate can't-do.
